Atlantic Christian College has a large place to fill in the educa- 
tional life of the Carolinas. If the College is to fill that place ade- 
quately, there is imperative need of an endowment. Herein lies a 
clear opportunity for the giving of money that will do great good, 
not only to the present generation of young people, but the genera- 
tions that are to come. The College now needs a new plant to 
adequately represent the people who own and control it, and to 
adequately do the work expected of it. In view of these needs, any 
bona fide gift in personal property, or real estate, is acceptable to 
the Institution. We insert here a form of bequest, which may be 
used as a paragraph in any will. Address the President for any 
additional information required. 


North Carolina, County. 


of the county and State aforesaid, being of sound mind, do make and 
declare this my last will and testament: 

Item first. 

Item second 

Item third. I give, devise and bequeath unto the Atlantic Chris- 
tian College (Inc.), of Wilson, North Carolina (here describe what- 

ever is given to said College) 

in fee, absolutely and forever. 

Atlantic Christian College 


Wilson, the seat of Atlantic Christian College, is ideally 
located for a college town. The main lines of two railway 
systems pass through it. The Atlantic Coast Line, running 
north and south, makes splendid connection with all the 
branches of that system. The Norfolk Southern, running 
east and west, makes easy access possible from these directions. 
"With about twenty passenger trains passing through it each 
day and every train stopping, you are never far from home 
when at Atlantic Christian College. 

The environments of Wilson are equally as advantageous 
as its accessibility. Wilson is a beautiful city, with good 
walks, electric lights, filtered water, successful sewerage sys- 
tem, and good health record. In the center of a prosperous 
farming section, it is a great cotton market, the largest ex- 
clusive loose leaf bright tobacco market in the world. Its 
citizens are hospitable, courteous and cordial. Its churches, 
representing the leading denominations, have handsome edifices 
of worship and are in a flourishing condition. 

In a thriving town of about twelve thousand population, 
having most of the advantages of a larger city, you are not 
lost and unknown in the multitude. We are able to keep track 
of our students. They are known to the people of the town, 
and it is not long before those of real worth are recognized. 
In such a center of religious, political and business influence 
our students come in contact with some of the greatest preachers, 
doctors, lawyers and business men of the State, and such oppor- 
tunities are not to be undervalued. 

10 Atlantic Christian College 


The fifty-seventh North Carolina Christian Missionary Con- 
vention met at Kinston, N. C, October 30 to November 2, 1901. 
The Co mm ittee on Education, consisting of D. W. Davis, B. H. 
Melton, W. J. Grumpier, E. A. Moye, and Dr. H. D. Harper, 
made a favorable report for the purchase of Kinsey Seminary, 
in Wilson, 'N. C, from the Wilson Educational Association. 
According to the report of this committee, which was duly 
adopted, the Board of Managers of the 1ST. C. C. M. C. were 
to act as agents of the Convention in acquiring this college 
property, and were to appoint four trustees to have immediate 
supervision of college. The institution was named Atlantic 
Christian College and incorporated May 1, 1902. Mr. George 
Hackney, of Wilson, 1ST. C, was made Treasurer of the College, 
and about $4,000 was contributed the first year. The building 
was taxed to its utmost capacity with students at the college 
opening in September, 1902. The college property was bonded 
for the original indebtedness of about $11,000 in 1902, which 
was fully paid in 1911. The payment of this debt made acces- 
sible the "W. N/. and Orpha Hackney Memorial Fund," which 
was bequeathed "for the education of worthy young men and 
women," and which consisted of real estate in Wilson to the 
value of about $3,000. In 1911 there was built a modern brick 
dormitory for men, on the campus, at an expense of about 
$15,000. In 1914 there was acquired a 672-acre farm in Onslow 
County, two miles south of Jacksonville, "N. C. 

The following have presided over the institution : J. C. 
Coggins, 1902-1904; J. J. Harper, 1904-1907; J. C. Caldwell, 
1907-1916; K. A. Smith, 1916-1920. 

Grounds and Buildings 

The college is located in a quiet section in the northern 
part of Wilson. The campus occupies a large city block of 
about six acres. The two main buildings are substantial brick 
structures. They are thoroughly modern in every respect, 

General Information 11 

heated throughout by steam, lighted by electricity. Modern 
plumbing and adequate bath facilities contribute to health and 
comfort. The furnishings will compare favorably with the best 
of similar institutions. 

Co-Educational Policy 

The institution is co-educational. The supervision is so 
close and vital, however, that we feel all objectionable features 
have been practically eliminated. 

In the dormitory for young women the lady teachers reside 
on the same floor with the young ladies. The oversight and 
care is substantially as exclusive as in institutions for women 

The young men have their own exclusive dormitory and 
society hall. A small athletic field with tennis and basket- 
ball courts furnishes adequate opportunity for recreation and 
sport in the open air, which in this climate is possible almost 
every day in the year. Several men of the faculty, with their 
wives, reside in the boys' dormitory. Thus we endeavor to secure 
such results by close supervision and care as will beget the best 
in study and in character training. 

Religious Culture 

Frequently young people going from home to college advance 
mentally, but retrograde morally. We endeavor to make this 
impossible at Atlantic Christian College. We care for character 
as well as intellect. We keep our students in a good moral 
atmosphere, throwing about them proper restraints and safe- 
guards, and giving them counsel. 

Every morning the students and professors assemble in the 
college auditorium for chapel exercises. The services are con- 
ducted by members of the faculty and visiting ministers of 
the Gospel. Brief addresses and lectures are given on religion, 
morals, good manners, temperance, the choosing of professions 
and vocations in life, etc. Visitors are always welcome. 

Students are required to attend Sunday School and church 
service at some church each Lord's Day. 

12 Atlantic Christian College 

The young men and young women maintain their own special 
prayer meetings in each of the buildings. These meetings do 
much to develop the devotional spirit and the power to publicly 
express their devotions. 

The religious interests and welfare of the students are fos- 
tered by a standing committee on Religious Education. A 
comprehensive plan has been prepared for the coming year 
and will be thoroughly executed. 

The Young Women's Christian Association is a constantly 
increasing source of strength and inspiration to the young 
women who want to make the most of their college life. At 
the regular meetings there is profitable discussion of devotional 
topics. Moreover, the members of this organization may enjoy 
the privileges of the widely known Students' Conference at 
Blue Ridge, 2*T. C, each June. 

Literary Societies 

There are two College Literary Societies : the Alethian and 
Hesperian. These organizations are very active and hold their 
meetings on Monday evening of each week. 

Physical Education 

On the college grounds are courts for tennis and basket- 
ball, affording opportunity for out-of-door exercise. 

Regular classes in physical culture are conducted by the 
physical directors. 

Our courses in physical culture are required of all students. 
The aim is both educative and recreative. 


College sports, such as football, basket-ball, baseball and tennis 
are encouraged. Good tennis and basket-ball courts are main- 
tained on the campus for both women and men, while League 
Park is available for intercollegiate sports. 

While athletics is generally cultivated by the student body 
and encouraged by the faculty, it has not become the chief 

General Information 13 

factor of our student life. Those who make the ball teams are 
required to be bona fide students. We do not desire a man who 
comes preeminently for athletics. Students who play match 
games with other colleges must have a class standing of passing 
grade at the time of the contest. aNTot more than five days 
absence during any semester is permitted any student for the 
purpose of sport. 

The Radiant 

But feAV publications of the kind excel the Radiant, issued 
quarterly by the students of the college. Through its columns 
opportunity is offered for genuine literary culture — thought 
takes symmetrical form and fittest mold. It is also a powerful 
means for the gendering and expression of a healthy and clean 
college spirit. No blackmail is tolerated; toadyism is despised. 
Through it every student who has something to say and can 
worthily say it finds avenue for his contention or sentiment. 

The staff is elected from the student body and alumni under 
the general direction of the Committee on Publications. 

The Pine Knot 

On the center tables of our friends and students, "a thing 
of beauty," whose well-thumbed pages show it "is a joy for- 
ever," lies the Pine Knot, the College Annual. 

It represents our best manhood and womanhood — the spirit 
that takes and gives, that dares and does, and falters not. It 
represents also the business energy and civic pride and hearty 
liberality that has placed Wilson among the best towns and 
cities of our Southland. Without the generous support of the 
business men of Wilson this splendid publication could not be 
made. Without the hearty cooperation of our students and 
friends it could not exist. 

With becoming pride, therefore, we present it as the pledge 
of our common interest. 

The Bulletin 

Through this publication the college makes announcements 
promptly, and prints news of general interest for its numerous 

14 Atlantic Christian College 

friends, thus bringing the institution per se into a close touch 
with its constituency. It is issued each November, February, 
May, and July. 


A good working library has become an indispensable part of 
the equipment We have installed a library of about two 
thousand volumes of well selected books, which have been 
carefully catalogued and indexed. In connection with the 
library is a reading room supplied with the leading magazines 
and serials, which students can use when they have spare 
moments. This room will provide a quiet place for local pupils 
to study during all vacant periods. The librarian will be in 
constant attendance during open hours. 


The laboratory for preparatory physics and general chenn 
istry is thoroughly equipped to meet the most exacting require- 
ments. We are equipped for general biological work. 

Reservation of Booms 

The rooms previously occupied are reserved for former stu- 
dents until July the 1st. A deposit of five dollars is required 
for the reservation of the room after that date. This will be 
credited on first quarter's expenses, or, if notice is given in 
writing three weeks before the opening of the school that the 
student cannot attend, the money will be refunded. Beginning 
July the 15th room assignments will be made to new students 
in the order in which their applications have been received. 
No room can be claimed unless the deposit has been made. 

What Boarding Pupils and Teachers are Required to Furnish 

One pair of blankets or comforts, one quilt, three sheets, two 
white bed-spreads, one pillow, two pillow-cases, towels and 
table napkins, soap, laundry bags, comb and brush, and pair 
of overshoes. Each young lady is required to have in addition 

General Information 15 

both a raincoat and an umbrella. All articles, including trunks 
and valises, should be marked distinctly with the owner's name. 
Each student should bring knife, fork and spoon, as table cutlery 
cannot be sent to rooms. 

We advise those who desire to make their rooms cozy and 
attractive to bring rugs, sofa pillows and pictures. 

Disciplinary Policy 

It is the aim of the institution to have all members of the 
faculty to reside in the buildings with the students. This affords 
the best possible opportunity for that personal contact and 
care for which the institution stands. The splendid opportu- 
nities now offered by our graded schools are preparing pupils 
for college at too immature an age for them to be out from 
under all restraining influence. Following is attached a list of 
regulations which all teachers, patrons and students are re- 
quested to note. 



All students when arriving at the college should report at 
once at the college office and matriculate, and be assigned to 
specific rooms and classes. Failure to do so will cause needless 
loss of time and expense. 

Matriculation obligates all pupils to conduct themselves with 
propriety on all occasions, and to conform to all rules that 
may be made for their government. 

A fee of ten ($10) dollars is charged all full-time literary 
students for matriculation, and is due and payable in full at the 
time the student is assigned to classes. This fee may be in- 
creased to $15 if matriculation is deferred beyond the time 
set apart especially for this work by the college. 


Students are required to keep their own rooms in order, 
and are held responsible for any damage to furniture or 

16 Atlantic Christian College 

Meals will be sent to the rooms in case of sickness only, 
and then by order of the matron of the dormitory. 

Ten o'clock p.m. is bed time in both dormitories. Lights 
will not be permitted after 10 :20 p.m. 

Students residing in the dormitories will not leave the campus 
at any time without the knowledge and consent of the dean 
of men or dean of women. 

Chapel and Sunday Services 

All students will be required to attend chapel exercises daily, 
and Sunday School and public worship once on Sunday. Pupils 
are permitted, however, to attend the church of their choice, 
or with which they or their parents are affiliated. 


All communications corcerning the men must be made to 
the dean of men, and concerning the women to the dean of 
women, and not sent through the students. This arrange- 
ment avoids many unpleasant misunderstandings. 

Parents and guardians should mail direct to the President 
of the College all drafts, checks and money orders, and not 
send through the student. 

Parents will furnish list of correspondents with whom they 
wish their daughters to correspond. Experience has shown 
this to be wise. 

Parents will receive timely notice in case of serious illness. 
Please inquire of the dean of men or the dean of women before 
taking action in case of sickness. 


Visitors are always welcome at the college. Rooms are 
equipped in each dormitory for their entertainment. A nom- 
inal charge of 35 cents per meal is made to cover cost of material 
and service. Students and teachers will obtain from the 
matron of respective dormitories meal tickets for their guests, 
and same will be charged to their accounts. Students may 
have guests only with the consent of their parents or guardians. 

General Information 17 

All visitors, while our guests, are under the same regula- 
tions as students. 


Needful permission will be granted to the young men by 
the dean of men, to the young women by the dean of women. 
Permissions to be absent from the college for week-ends will 
be limited and in some cases may be denied as not for the 
best interest of the student or the school. 

The attention of parents is called to the injurious effects 
of such absences and their cooperation is sought in diminishing 
them. Requests should only rarely be made. 

On all occasions students are required to come directly to 
college after reaching Wilson. 

Parents coming to Wilson, and desiring to see their sons or 
daughters, will please call at the college. 

Students are not permitted to go down town in response to 
telephone requests. 

Day Pupils 

Students residing in Wilson, while on the campus, are subject 
to the same regulations as boarding students. 

Self Help 

Opportunity is offered a number of students to earn their 
board. The work does not take time from recitation, and 
interferes very little with study hours. Twenty-five hours per 
week in sweeping, washing dishes, waiting on table or firing fur- 
naces, work on farm and in dairy is exchanged for board. 
Preference is given to those who could not otherwise obtain 
an education. 


Ministerial students and those preparing to be missionaries 
are granted their literary tuition by an action of the Board 
of Trustees in November, 1920. If a change is made in life plan, 
these students are expected to repay tuition so granted. This 
regulation applies only to work of college grade.

The High School 

F. F. Grim, A.M., Principal 

This department is under the supervision of the head of 
the Department of Education in the College. It is designed 
to meet the needs of those who are deficient in some or all of the 
requirements for entrance to the Freshman year in college, 
and to give a general education to such as are unable to com- 
plete a college course. We are striving to make this the most 
thorough and conscientious secondary school in the State. To 
this end the high school curriculum has been strengthened 
and enlarged to meet in every particular the requirements of 
the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, 
and enriched in such way as to more effectually prepare those 
who finish this course to be more efficient members of the 
community of which they may be a part. 

Combinations of secondary and college studies may be made 
with approval of the committee on assignment. Those who 
do not contemplate completing a regular college course, but 
who desire to fit themselves for technical or professional 
courses are offered a wide field of opportunity. 

High School students have the same literary society, library 
and other general privileges as those in college. 

Students desiring to be enrolled in the first year of high 
school will be admitted in accordance with the recommendation 
of the State Inspector of High Schools. If at the end of 
the first month a student finds that he cannot do the work 
prescribed in the first year he will be asked to withdraw. 

Records of previous work will be required of all students 
entering for the first time. These records must be presented 
at entrance.

The High School 59 


I — 1 and 2. Arithmetic. 

A thorough review of the subject is given. Especial 
emphasis is placed on analysis of problems, accuracy of 
work, and application to business. 

II — 1 and 2. Algebra. 

A good working knowledge of the principles of arith- 
metic is required. Drill work on the elementary prin- 
ciples of Algebra up to Quadratics makes up this course. 

Ill — 1 and 2. Algebra. 

High school Algebra completed. The work includes 
Quadratics, Involution and Evolution, Theory of Expo- 
nents, Binomial Theorem, and advanced work in solution 
of problems. Thoroughness and accuracy are emphasized.

Five books. The usual propositions are considered. 
Reasoning along geometrical lines is carefully guided and 
developed. Especial attention is given to original demon- 

V= — Business Arithmetic. 


I — 1 and 2. General Science. 

The purpose of this course is two-fold. First, to give the 
student a good general idea of the field covered by modern 
science ; and, second, to determine the student's fitness 
for scientific work before he undertakes any of the courses 
of a specialized nature. The course introduces the young 
student to the more elementary facts of Botany, Zoology, 
Biology, Geology, Physics and Chemistry. The wide 
range of subjects of course makes detailed knowledge im- 

60 Atlantic Christian College 

possible, but it will give a comprehensive view of scientific 
work and also show the relationship existing between all 
branches of Science. 

[II — Physiography. 

1. This course, alternating with Course 2, is intended to 
introduce the student, (1) to the form of the earth and 
its relation to the solar system, (2) the atmosphere, its 
composition, temperature, pressure, weather changes, (3) 
the ocean, its temperature, movement, geologic activities, 
(4) the land, its formation and geologic changes. Offered 
every other year. 

2. Commercial Geography. This course may alternate 
with course 1, and will attempt to familiarize the student 
with the general movements of commerce and the laws 
governing such movements ; to provide a knowledge of the 
chief products of the different parts of the earth and the 
localities where such products are mainly consumed, and 
to give information concerning the chief industrial and 
trade centers.] 

Ill — Physiology. 

1. The object of this course is to develop an apprecia- 
tion of the human body. This necessitates a knowledge 
of its structure and the work of its parts separately 
and as a whole. A knowledge of this kind is a neces- 
sary foundation for advanced study, and should be the 
possession of every intelligent person, for without it effec- 
tive cooperation in modern methods of healing as prac- 
ticed by physicians is impossible. 

2. Sanitation and Hygiene. This course logically fol- 
lows Course 1, and pays especial attention to the care of 
the body. A student of drainage and sewage disposal 
is given attention in order that health may be safeguarded 
and not impaired, simply on account of ignorance or neg- 
lect of the simple rules for a wholesome physical environ- 

The High School 61 

[IV — Agriculture. Third year. 

1. The object of this course is to open to the student's 
view some of the vast possibilities of modern farming when 
carried on in a thoroughly scientific manner. An effort 
will be made to link up the known facts of the laboratory 
and scientific theory in such a way that the student will 
see the advantages of such information and study the 
problems of the farm Avith the same careful observation 
of small, but important detail, that he uses in the labora- 
tory. The course will deal principally with general farm 
management, up-to-date methods of harvesting, care of 
cattle, orchards, etc. First semester. 

2. This course, a continuation of III-l, is more detailed. 
It will pay special attention to the nature of different 
kinds of soil and their value for various products, to fer- 
tilizers, to principles of crop rotation, soil bacteria, field 
crops and management. Second semester. 

Two hours per week will be devoted to the study of 
Agricultural Chemistry necessary to an adequate under- 
standing of plant growth, soil composition, tests of various 
fertilizers, and stock feeding materials, and dairy products.] 

[V — Physics. Fourth year. 

1. Mechanics, molecular physics and heat comprise the 
subjects in this course. Extensive use will be made of 
the laboratory, together with a well kept note-book. 

2. Electricity, magnetism, sound and light. This course 
is the continuation of Course 1, and needs no further 
description, as the same method will be pursued.] 

Domestic Science 

It is with the special object in view of fitting our students 
to become creators and preservers of the home that Atlantic 
Christian College offers a department of Domestic Science. 

In the education of women there is no other subject that 
should claim more attention or be of more importance than 

62 Atlantic Christian College 

that of home-making. The trend of modern education for 
women is toward a thorough understanding of home-making. 

This department has for its purpose the training of the 
students in the art of home-making, and includes a thorough 
study of foods. This course receives consideration from the 
standpoint of convenience, economy and health. 

The equipment is modern and ample, and the student uses 
up-to-date and practical methods in her cooking. 

The work is planned to extend over two years.

School of Music 65 

School of Music 

Ivy Mat Smith, Director 

The aim of the School of Music of Atlantic Christian Col- 
lege is hroad and far-reaching. It wishes to create in its stu- 
dents a desire for knowledge of the highest possible standard ; 
to develop such desire in the right direction, surrounding its 
pupils with musical atmosphere just as far as it is possible 
to do so; to educate its pupils on broad lines and get the best 
results obtainable in the shortest possible time. 

It is essential for students of the School of Music to receive 
training in the Liberal Arts School, that they may have suffi- 
cient knowledge and understanding to become thorough and 
capable students of both the science and appreciation of the art. 

The school is well equipped throughout with splendid pianos. 
The practice rooms are furnished with upright pianos in good 
tune and repair. The studios are large, comfortable and at- 
tractive for teaching. Several of them contain two pianos. 
The Auditorium, where all recitals are given, contains a fine 
concert grand piano and a new upright piano. 


The School of Music offers thorough and concise courses in 
Piano, Voice, and Violin, along with such courses as are indis- 
pensable to the educated musician of today: General Theory, 
Harmony, Counterpoint, Composition, Form and Analysis, Ap- 
preciation of Music, Sight-singing, Philosophy of Music, En- 
semble playing, Orchestration, and History of Music. 

The prescribed course of study in all departments places 
emphasis upon comprehensive study of the modern systems 
of technic and compositions of the Classic, Romantic, and 
Modern periods. The course of study for piano is systematically 
divided into six grades : two grades of Academic work and 

66 Atlantic Christian College 

four years of Collegiate work, offering two distinct courses — 
the Teacher's Course and the Artist's Course. At the begin- 
ning of the Junior Collegiate year the work will be molded 
according to the pupil's intention. If he is fitting himself 
for teaching, he will receive special instruction along lines of 
pedagogy; or should he wish to become a concert pianist, par- 
ticular attention will be given to accumulating a repertoire of 
solos. A wide range of musical literature will be required 
along either course. The Leschetizky technic is taught. 

The School of Music is under the direct supervision of the

which have heretofore confronted the child during the first 
year of music study. It nourishes and develops the child's 
nature on all sides, mentally, spiritually and physically, and 
creates a real love for the art, from the beginning of the child's 


Students sufficiently advanced are required to play at the 
Student Recitals. All students of the School of Music are 
required to attend. This is one of the most important factors 
in the development of the pupil's talent, self-confidence and 
executive ability. The recitals are regularly attended by the 
faculty and students of the college and their friends. 


Ensemble playing is of inestimable value to the student 
who wishes to become a proficient sight-reader and accom- 
panist. The practice is for two pianos — four or eight hands. 
Self-control must be cultivated. The general musicianship of 
the student improves as the student becomes familiar with 
many of the standard masterpieces, for a wide range of litera- 
ture is studied. 


The work of this class is of utmost value to all students 
whether their specialty be Piano, Voice, or Violin. The stu- 
dent is taught to recognize by ear and express in writing 
rhythms, intervals, melodies, chords, and chord progressions. 
The work is systematically graded from diatonic melodies 
with the simplest rhythmic combinations to compositions in- 
volving difficult problems of tone rhythm. It is required of 
Voice students and open to all students of the school. 


The entire student body attend chapel, but only the best 
voices are chosen for the choir, which leads the singing for 

72 Atlantic Christian College 

all chapel services. Special choir practice is held weekly, 
when all members are expected to be present. 

The College Glee Clubs are a valuable acquisition to the 

The Choral Society consists of the young ladies of the col- 
lege who possess the best singing voices. 


The college maintains its own orchestra. Students of string 
and wind instruments have the advantage of ensemble playing, 
with piano, beginning with simple composition, advancing to 
the mastery of the classical and modern schools. 


Collegiate pupils and Senior Academic pupils in piano will 
receive practice in ensemble playing one hour a week, free of 

Students in voice will receive practice in sight-singing one 
hour a week free of charge. 

Orchestra practice to students of violin one hour a week free 
of charge. 

Courses in Elementary Musical History, Appreciation of 
Music, and Philosophy of Music, are free of charge. 

All students of music have free access to the college library. 

Clavier practice free to pupils of the school. 

The matriculation fee is not charged to town students who 
enroll in the School of Music for private lessons, in either 
Piano, Voice, or Violin. 

Students of Voice Culture will be provided an accompanist 
for a small additional fee. 

Work will be accepted from other institutions or private 
teachers, but in no case will credit be given toward an A.B. 
degree until the student passes satisfactorily the required ex- 
amination in the theoretical courses, if such work has not been 
successfully pursued. 

Twelve hours credit will be given toward the A.B. degree to 

School of Music 73 

students of the School of Music who carry successfully the 
required number of hours per week. 


Students wishing to receive a diploma in Voice Culture 
must have completed the Freshman Year in Piano, General 
Theory, Harmony, Musical History, and Musical Appreciation. 

Students wishing to receive a diploma in Violin must have 
completed the Second Year of Academic in Piano, General 
Theory, and Freshman Year in Musical History.

the A.B. degree. In addition to these requirements the student 
must have sufficient technical and musical training to pursue 
successfuly the work of the Freshman Year, in the department 
of the School of Music in which she may wish to enter. 

A study may be continued to the extent of three units ; 
such conditions being removed before being classified as a 
regular Sophomore in Music.

(For Women) 

This department is organized to supply the opportunity for 
such physical work as experience has shown to be necessary 
to counteract the injurious effect of close application to mental 
work and to favor the attainment by the student body of a 
high state of physical efficiency. The director endeavors to in- 
terest each student in some form of exercise in which she can 
become proficient. Special exercises are assigned to correct 
deficiencies and good carriage is insisted upon. A thorough 
physical examination prefaces the work of each individual. 
Every boarding pupil is required to take physical training. 
Tennis and basketball are open to students in this department, 
the latter game strictly for recreation and not for competition. 
The basketball and tennis courts are kept in condition for out- 
door games.
